and Judhi Chopping believe in the "true" Aussie, a
versatile dog with the intelligence and beauty to
compete in any venue...one who has a keen natural
working instinct, who is physically and mentally sound,
and one with an excellent temperament. Our Aussies go
the extra mile to please...they are "clowns" and smile
with the best...they are valuable companions and
Gearhart Aussies feature the
"Mistretta Hall of Fame Excellent Kennel" bloodlines,
line bred with selective outcrosses. Our dogs are of
moderate size, males being 21 inches and females
19 inches with slight variation. Many of our dogs are
natural bob tails (NBT) and all have natural ear sets.
Blue eyes, intense color and dark copper trim are common
in our dogs. The dogs we breed are OFA excellent or
good; and without compromise to any faults or fads. They
are tested for genetic issues (such as CEA, Cataract,
MDR1, PRA, CMR1 ) and must be free of any hereditary
disorder before breeding. Eyes are tested, annually, by
a certified Veterinary Ophthalmologist.
Aussies have been placed in the United States, Canada,
Austria, Poland, Germany, Denmark, Finland,France and
and are top competitors in working stock dog trials,
agility and obedience as well as in conformation; and
they are beloved family pets.
Gearhart Aussies is
an approved kennel, registered with the American Kennel
Club and with the Australian Shepherd Club of America;
and is designated a "DNA Certified Kennel."
